Formerly a California Collectors car, it is here in Alabama... still with zero rust... and...
a VERY straight body with only minor dings, and needing a re-alignment and small repair of driver's front fender at lower door.
Most things appear to be working, but we have not been able to drive, as it has a broken axle half shaft in the rear.

It has a very nice headliner.
Four 205/75 -15 tires are good with lots of tread.

Both bumpers are good.
Stainless trim is very good, and included.
Nice grill, with deluxe surround trim.

Windshield and rear window are very good. FLAT glass in side windows has cracks or discoloring and will need replacement.


This is a RARE Opportunity to acquire one of the earliest Lark, that will be a straight-forward restoration.
For many years we have had a reputation for not being over-positive in our assessments.
That said, this is about the very best 60 year old car we have ever had for restoration, and I believe it it is a good candidate for even amateurs with basic skills, as it requires minimum body work, runs good, has a clean interior, and is pretty complete to begin with, and is a relatively rare and very desirable car when completed.

The car comes with California TITLE, making your registration or Importing easier.





Here is a You tube video of the car running... just as we received it.... https://youtu.be/go1rJo4_xPA
